Burn ban lifted in City

Erie Fire Department officials on Thursday lifted the burn ban put in place on June 7.

“The region received enough rain over the past few days to diminish the fire risk to brush and other materials,” said Assistant Fire Chief Leonard Trott. “Recreational fires in approved outdoor fireplaces are now allowed again.”

The Erie Fire Department responded to scores of brush fires and other related incidents over the last few weeks due to unusually dry weather conditions in Erie.
